HUGE SLICES!!!

We were in the area and were trying to figure out where everyone was getting their pizza from, as they all were walking around with these huge slices of cheese pizza. So of course we had to try it out for ourselves! Pizza was good! The right ratio of sauce, dough and cheese.

For the price, one slice equals 2 normal ones in quantity! Best pie in the area! Every time we crave a slice we go out of our way to come here, even better that there open late!!

Greasy pizza sold by thieves. Early this year I went to Lorenzo's, a grimy little hole in the wall supposedly representative of Philly charm. Yeah... the kind of Philly where you get knifed in the back for your pocket change. You'd have better luck fending off the sewer rats on Washington Street as you suck on a used Big Mac... More

this pizza was amazing! one of the best things that we ate while in Philly. We happened upon this pizza place while walking. It was totally worth the 4 bucks that we spent on it plus some! I would love to go back.,

Several years ago upon my arrival in Philly from TX, family and I discovered Lorenzo's walking around Little Italy. It is now a tradition that we head there when I get off the plane for food. BIG fan of their pizza which all I personally have had although family members have had chicken strips, fries and cheese steaks...all delicious. I... More

Hubby stopped by this place because he was drawn in by the smell. I must admit it did smell pretty good from the outside. Anyway the slice is $3.50 but so worth it. We are a family of 4 and we share 1 slice to hold us down until we finish shopping. The slice is so big and worth the... More

Lorenzo's far exceeded my expectations, not only are the pieces of pizza gigantic, they are quite good too. They only serve cheese pizza, expect for certain days when you can add toppings. I got one piece and it was enough to split between two people. Overall, I would recommend!!

Cannot be beat! $3.50 for a giant slice of pizza . . . . Easily as big as 2+ regular slices. . . . . . . actually too big for 2 paper plates. We were there on a Friday afternoon and all they were serving was plain cheese . . . . . it was great. They have a... More

If you want a really big slice of cheese pizza that's a good value, then this is your place in Philly. There are no toppings (except one night of the week) and few options, but as far as cheese pizza goes, it's pretty good. I'd recommend this place as an "afternoon snack" over a meal, but it's a local favorite... More
